The Cork has been postponed

There are simply some things in life that aren't controllable. And because of those uncontrollable things, The Cork Young Memorial Golf Tournament that was to be held tomorrow, has had to be rescheduled for a later date.
Keep tuned in for when that will be.

Sign up now for 6th annual Cork Young Charity Golf Tournament

 Winning last years' event was the Renning family! It could be you this year...sign up ... and play to win. Because in the end, everyone wins at the Cork!

The sixth annual Cork Young Charity Golf Tournament will be held on Sunday, June 29, 2012 at the Deer Park golf course.  The three person scramble will begin at 10:00 a.m. A complimentary meal, flag prizes, and trophies for each of the three flights will be included in the $200/team entry fee. 
 Since its inception in 2007, the Cork has donated over $30,000 to local charities including the Sandhills Area Foundation, the Valentine Youth Activities Association, and the Valentine High School Foundation. 
This year the tournament’s proceeds will be donated to the Sandhills Cancer Fund to help with travel expenses for those seeking out-of-town medical attention.  This donation will be given in honor of Cork’s sister, Elizabeth Dorris, who was recently diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.  If you are interested in joining the fun, call Deer Park at 402-376-1271 to register your team.

Nebraska Star Party...NOW!

That's right folks, the Nebraska Star Party is going on NOW at Merritt Reservoir! They had quite the show tonight I'm sure, complete with lightning, rumbling clouds, and maybe - GOD willing - some rain...something we're all praying for.
Except if you're in a tent at the Snake Campground trying to look at stars - which these folks are.

Tomorrow, Wednesday, July 18, there will be classes held at Valentine High School, something for you and your family...there are even classes for the kids! Make sure you stop in and see what the fuss is all about. Classes begin at 12:30 p.m.

Then, make the plan to stop out Friday night about 9:00 p.m., before it's dark. Come early even, and enjoy the pristine white beaches and cool waters of Merritt if it's hot. As the sun sets, the show will begin, the Star Party gang will have their telescopes ready for you to view different planets, gobular clusters, and things you probably didn't know even existed in deep space.

 The beauty of the "steam" rising from the tea-pot. The steam is really the Milky Way - and it's oh, so beautiful and is pictured above!

Park with lights facing the exit and bring a flashlight covered with red cellophane so as to not ruin your "night eyes" or the "night eyes" of others.  Dark skies are scarce, and ours are fabulous. Make the plan. Work the plan. And finally, enjoy the plan.
